Drills with a Purpose Practice Systems That Match Your Defensive Objectives

Whitworth practices 11-player drills that match the goals of their defense – pursuit, interception, and two-minute drills.

Most coaches understand the importance of drilling with a specific purpose in mind. Most educators have stressed the importance of teaching toward a specific objective. However, not all coaches align their drills with their team’s main objectives. We have intentionally aligned our practice drills to match, teach, and reinforce our main defensive objectives.

Our defense at Whitworth University is built on four objectives:

  • Attempt to get eleven defender to the ball each play.
  • Create turnovers.
  • Play fast and play smart.
  • Defend from the inside-out of the offensive formation and make the ball go deep and wide both in the run and pass game.
